Hi Brenda, this was yummy. I was a bit short on the spinach as I only had a wee bit, but everything else was as it should be. It was so quick to make and we had it for lunch. DH likes this kind of soup, and loves noodles, so he was very happy. It's a good stand by recipe as I had everything in my freezer or larder I used ready cooked chicken breast from the freezer and you always have spring onions in the fridge. Thank you for posting.
